Regan Smith Adds Pit Road Reporting To Expanded Role With FOX Sports

CHARLOTTE, NC (November 29, 2017) - FOX Sports has begun stacking its broadcaster deck for 2018 with the addition of veteran driver Regan Smith.

Smith will serve as a pit reporter for the MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES and NASCAR XFINITY SERIES, in addition to continuing his role as a NASCAR RACE HUB analyst. He took a broadcasting test drive with his race analyst debut last June at Iowa Speedway for FS1’s presentation of the NASCAR XFINITY SERIES race.

“When I had the opportunity to be in the FOX Sports booth at Iowa earlier in the year, the driver in me was really intrigued by the TV side of the sport,” Smith said. “So, my biggest goal in joining pit road is to be able to give viewers something they didn’t know before or to better help them understand something going on with the driver or the car. Since I am still competing, I can put into perspective what a driver is feeling at a particular moment.”

Smith, winner of the prestigious Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in 2011 and 2008 MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES Rookie of the Year, has regularly appeared as a driver analyst on FS1’s NASCAR RACE HUB since 2015.
“We’ve enjoyed and appreciated Regan’s insight in the NASCAR RACE HUB studio but really had our eyes opened to his broadcasting potential at Iowa last summer,” said Steve Craddock, FOX Sports SVP of NASCAR Production. “A fan and peer favorite, he has proven himself seamless in translating his years of driving experience to the viewers at home.”

This will be the FOX NASCAR network’s 18th consecutive season broadcasting NASCAR races.
